This week’s rain brought a fresh batch of new North Texas jams. Fort Worth’s Averi Burk sent in the high-energy song “Gravity,” and we heard “Strawberry Kiss” – the debut single from Denton duo Tela Bella. Dallas artist Paige Hill teamed up with Issac Sloan from Issac Sloan and the Sound Brigade for the rockin’ blues song “Go It Alone,” and the electronic industrial group Nite sent their new single “Inside Of My Head.”
Check out the full playlist after the highlights, and if you are an artist from North Texas, be sure to submit your music here.
I liked this song so much that I played it three times this week. Averi gave us an upbeat dance number just in time for summer!
The ensemble’s Instagram bio says that it’s a band that will “piss your mom off.” The group was formed in Forth Worth during the pandemic when members from the Cut Throat Finches, The Hendersons, Polydogs, Arenda Light, Bastards of Soul and even the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra started recording together at Niles City Sound. Their debut album, Cuss Words, just dropped today.
The Denton band is back with “Overlooked”. The song, recorded at Civil Audio in Denton, is full of 90s grunge vibes and is about not giving up during trying times.
